Principles of real-time and embedded systems operations and control applied to modern hardware platforms such as mobile and internet-of-things systems. As part of this course, embedded real-time design principles are introduced and linked to real-time resource management service issues impacting performance. Students construct real-time embedded resource management components and applications on representative platforms (e.g. handheld and mobile computers, autonomous systems, smart sensors, and others). An embedded real-time hardware/firmware laboratory experience is included.
